Global transportation experts gather in Dubai
Government transportation officials and industry heads from 15 countries will meet in Dubai this October to thrash out a blueprint for improved regional traffic management.
Road safety, mass transit, Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and urban planning developments will be the key issues at the multi-national Gulf Traffic Convention to be staged between October 26 – 29 at Dubai’s Crowne Plaza Hotel, alongside Gulf Traffic 2002, the region’s vertical exhibition for the transportation sector.
“We anticipate that over 350 Middle East and international delegates will attend the convention which will include 26 keynote speakers from the GCC, the USA, the UK, Australia and Western Europe, including the President of the European Union Road Federation,” said Senior Conference Manager, IIR Exhibitions and Conferences, Anca Westley.
Over $300 million in ITS investment alone is in the pipeline across the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) for the next five to 10 years, according to Wilbur Smith Associates (WSA), a leading international consulting firm and among the event’s sponsors. — (menareport.com)
